A beautiful smile is essential for boosting self-confidence and regular dental checkups are the best way to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy. By taking preventative measures now, you can save yourself from a world of pain in the future. At OptiSmile, we understand the importance of keeping your teeth in peak condition. That’s why our team employs leading-edge dental technology and provides detailed checkups to keep you smiling.
At a dental exam or checkup, you can expect a comprehensive assessment of your mouth and teeth. Checkups include an oral examination to evaluate the condition of your gums, teeth, tongue, cheeks, and jaw. At OptiSmile, we’ll also look for plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to gum disease.
For a more accurate diagnosis, 3D imaging may be used to understand your dental structure better. 3D imaging helps our dentists detect cavities or other problems early, which is essential for preserving overall oral health. Digital photos are also taken to track changes over time.
We’ll then do an oral cancer screening where we’ll look at soft tissue areas like the inside of your lips, cheeks and tongue for abnormalities that could be associated with cancerous cells.
At the end of your visit, you’ll receive tailored guidance from your dentist on how best to maintain good oral health moving forward. They’ll discuss specific tips on brushing habits, flossing techniques and diet. All crucial factors in maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
It is recommended that adults should get a dental examination and cleaning every six months, though the exact frequency will depend on individual needs. People with diabetes or other medical conditions, pregnant women, current smokers, those taking certain medications, or those suffering from gum disease may need to be checked more often by their dentist.
When it comes to dental visits, life happens; sometimes, they just don’t get scheduled as expected. Even though ideally, we recommend clients visit the dentist at least every six months for important preventive check-ups, it is not uncommon for people to wait up to five years between appointments. This can result in neglecting a fundamental aspect of one’s own healthcare needs and habits. Yet in some cases, potential dental patients are hesitant to even come into the clinic due to embarrassment or memories of unfortunate experiences in the past. Our dental practice understands these scenarios and enthusiastically welcomes each patient with warmth and understanding regardless of their current circumstances.

A dental checkup will enable a dentist to verify whether you have any dental problems, current or potential, that may require attention. Often finding a problem early on can prevent it from becoming a more painful and costly issue.
Even if no immediate dental repairs or work is required on your teeth, it’s always good to have a thorough clean and to just be able to talk to your dentist about any concerns you may have.
